Eli Grant is from Baltimore, Maryland with his mother, Valerie. He was friends with Sheila and her brother Russell, who were good friends, but who got into trouble with the law for shoplifting and vandalism. As Eli was scared straight, Sheila and her brother got into drugs. Eli became a cop and went undercover in Chicago where Sheila and Russell were selling drugs. He abused their trust so he could arrest them and further his career. He learned Russell was stabbed and killed in prison and felt guilt for it ever since.
Eli arrived in Salem after hearing that his biological father was David Banning and that he had passed away. He became close with his grandmother, Julie Williams, and pushed his mother, Valerie, away for a time, angry with her for keeping his father from him. He met and started to date Gabi Hernandez.
